One of the most famous cookies is Oreo, which is a chocolate wafer sandwich cookie with a sweet creme filling in between. It’s been first introduced on March 6, 1912 in the U.S. and it’s been the best-selling cookie ever since. There are 22 notable flavors in the US, but not all varieties are available in every country.

One thing you probably didn’t know about this delicious treat is that it causes your brain to have a similar association of pleasure as it does when abusing Cocaine.

According to a study conducted on lab rats that were given Oreos by Connecticut College students and a professor of neuroscience, “Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do,” said Professor Joseph Schroeder in a statement. “It may explain why some people can’t resist these foods despite the fact that they know they are bad for them.”

The professor and his team discovered that lab rats formed an “equally strong association” between the pleasure of eating an Oreo cookie and being exposed to cocaine or morphine. It’s been also demonstrated that eating Oreos activated more neurons in the lab rat’s brain’s “pleasure center” than being exposed to these highly addictive and dangerous drugs.

Here are the ingredients found in one pack of Oreos:

SUGAR, UNBLEACHED UNRICHED FLOUR (, WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE [VITAMIN B1], RIBOFLAVIN [VITAMIN B2], FOLIC ACID) , HIGH OLEIC CONOLA OIL, AND/OR , PALM OIL, AND/OR , CANOLA OIL, AND/OR , SOYBEAN OIL, COCOA (PROCESSED WITH ALKALI), HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CORNSTARCH, LEAVENING (, BAKING SODA, AND/OR , CALCIUM PHOSPHATE) , SALT, SOY LECITHIN, VANILLIN, – AN ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR , CHOCOLATE

Reduced iron – the remaining product of rust which has been de-rusted by applying an electrical current and hydrogen to the rust.

Synthetic Folic Acid – the Lactobacillus Casei bacteria is treated with multiple acids until a form of folic acid remains, appearing to be almost pure.

Sugar and corn sugar (high fructose corn syrup)when fed to rats, they gained 300% more fat than those being fed (even slightly more amounts of) regular sugar or sugar from fruit. Furthermore, it can also fatten your heart with bad cholesterol, causing plaque build up, leading to hypertension, heart disease and even stroke.

The liver also suffers as it causes fatty liver; Scarring of the liver diminishes its ability to process out toxins that will make you sick. HFCS is also high in Mercury levels. Exposure (in young, growing children especially) can result in irreversible brain and nervous system damage.

Soy lecithin – can cause breast cancer, negatively affects fertility fertility and reproduction, and may lead to behavioral and cerebral abnormalities.

High Oleic Canola oila genetically engineered plant developed in Canada from the Rapeseed Plant, which is part of the mustard family of plants. Recently, scientists developed sunflower (and other) oils that are bred to be high in monounsaturated fats and low in polyunsaturated fats so they can be used in products that need to be shelf-stable. Namely, Canada paid the FDA $50 million to have rape registered and recognized as “safe”.

“By nature, these rapeseed oils, which have long been used to produce oils for industrial purposes, are… toxic to humans and other animals” reports AgriAlternatives, The Online Innovation, and Technology Magazine for Farmers.

Soybean oil – soy is known to contain higher levels of phytoestrogen than any other food. Phytoestrogens are plant based estrogen that mimic the estrogen in our body, and by consuming high amounts of them can lead to breast cancer, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, infertility and low libido. Moreover:
-Phytlates found in soy block mineral absorption.
-Also found in Soy, Trypsin inhibitors, inhibits proper digestion of protein.
-93% of Soy is genetically modified.

Calcium Phosphatecauses side-effects like change in the amount of urine, bone/muscle pain, headache, nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, constipation, stomach upset, unusual weight loss, mental/mood changes, tiredness, fast/pounding heartbeat, increased thirst, increased urination, weakness.

Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, include: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

Vanillin –  not a real vanilla, often combined with sugar, corn syrup, or a similar low-quality sweetener to make the product taste better.
